Found video interview
Donna and Betty... no idea where https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR7w5soIC8M
Donna talks about things I read about she and Kieth joining the Dead. But Betty talks about these recordings... likely most have seen this, but it was new to me.
Particularly hearing the story of the AMPEX 16 track recordings to create album Live Dead. I hadn't heard all of it, or some parts of it, and not for a long time, but I love the inspiration of her creative choice!

Buzz all night long
Really like 3 Sets in One Performance
It takes the Morning Dew a bit to kick.
So in comes Pig with Harp in hand to give us two blues tunes
sandwiching Doing that Rag.
The Pig Tunes are very sultry
almost picture Ron making his move.
Then as to emphasize PIG'S dominion
We get a set closing LOVELIGHT.
Note: was thinking about Weir soaking this all in
His main vocals in this set are during 'Shine on Me'
:) :) :)
Set 2: Cryptical -> Drums-> The Other One-> Cryptical,
Dark Star-> Stephen-> Eleven-> Death Don't :) :) :) ;)
Set 3: Alligator-> Drums-> Alligator->
Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks)
-> Feedback-> We Bid You Good Night :) :) :) :) :)

I could plug my Marantz 420 into the headphone jack in the PC and record these on a XLII and be so happy.
Healy was highlighted in a GQ article for his sweet pile of shirts...

Awesome School Girl
MONSTER show, MONSTER run. The School Girl is my personal favorite at 10:45. Pigpen is an usung hero of the blues. Never got the solo album he deserved.
That’s all I’m got to say.

Awesome as it is, it's quite patchy & nowhere near as good as the previous night. On the other hand, a million stars for not breaking up That's It for the Other One into 4 stupid tracks. I hate it when people do that lame record-store crap.

Bob & Betty recording???
I was confused as who recorded the source multi-track tapes of this show as it denotes Dan Healy. I asked Betty Cantor-Jackson to confirm who recorded it and her polite response was "That was me. I don't remember Healy ever recording any live multi-track." I asked if Bob Mathews was also recording and her response was "yes." So there it is, folks. :]
My question now is, are these Dan Healy's mix-downs of the multi-tracks to DAT and thus a Healy source? Not trying to nitpick, just want credit where credit is due.
All being said, incredible recording and show. Well worth a listen!
I'd like to go out on a short limb and cast my vote for this being the Dead's greatest ever performance of Alligator. And by Alligator I don't just mean Alligator, I mean the 30+ minutes that is:
Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) >
And We Bid You Good Night
I've spent a lot of time hiking and while on the trail I listen to Dead shows and compare performances. A couple of years ago I started checking out this night and ... wow this jam goes on forever, taking numerous turns through various themes. It's a very special performance, on par with the material that made the final cut of Live/Dead. A lot of people vote 1971-04-29 as the best Alligator, but not me. That performance is more of a farewell to an era. This performance, 1969-02-28, is that era at its peak.
